We had a pretty great weekend and wrap up to our Fall Break. So thankful for our time off and special outings!
We kicked off our weekend fun on Friday with a trip to Stone Mountain. We had planned the trip to be a late afternoon and evening outing after Terrell finished work for the day but they closed at 5 so we made it a day trip instead. And since Terrell had to work, Granna came along! We enjoyed their pumpkin characters and all the features Stone Mountain has to offer. It was a fun Friday for sure. ☺
Recognize the Toy Story characters?? So cute!
We started the day at the Dinosaur exhibit per Layton's request.
We are big fans of all the dinosaurs.
After walking through all the dinosaurs the boys had a blast in the "Dinotorium". We were 1 of maybe 2 or 3 families so it was super laid back and easy.
Next we rode to the top of the mountain! And it was shockingly cold and rainy at the top!!
We were definitely in the clouds! Plus cold and wet so we didn't stay long. Haha.
But we all enjoyed the gondola rides up and down. ☺
Layton finally got his train ride! He was thrilled!
The mini golf course was closed so after the train ride the boys did the mini ropes course before we called it a day. We had a great time.
While we were there Austin and Layton spotted the superhero pumpkins and requested to have their pictures made with them. Super impressive and cool! This one is Thor...
And The Hulk! ☺We were hot, sweaty, and tired by the time we left. Other than a long, traffic-filled drive home that made the boys crazy ill and hungry, it was an awesome day. ☺
Saturday morning we resumed soccer and all 3 boys had games! My soccer players sure are cute.
My favorite numbers on the field! I love watching them play.
And I wore my new favorite shirt to their games. Terrell and the boys got it for me for my birthday and it's perfect. #allthehearteyes
On Saturday after soccer, lunch, and rest time we made our annual visit to the Pumpkin Patch! We had a great time. I'm going to blog about our trip later this week. ☺
After getting home, taking showers, and getting into pjs, we settled in for our very own little Georgia party. The big boys asked earlier in the week if they could stay up late on Saturday night for the UGA game so we decided to make a special night of it. We ate in the basement picnic style, had DQ ice cream for dessert, and let the big boys stay up until halftime.... which was past 9:00. They were thrilled but so tired. ☺
Layton gave out a little earlier so I put him to bed before halftime, but it was a fun night that we'll definitely plan to do again. While Terrell watched the 2nd half, I picked out and ironed all of my clothes for the work week. Then I crashed. Go Dawgs! Haha.
Sunday morning and ready for church!
And the silly picture they requested. Hahaha.

After church and lunch I bought groceries and spent the afternoon making lunches for the week (Monday-Thursday only because Fridays are lunchables day) and doing chores like laundry, dusting, and vacuuming. It wasn't exactly restful but it was needed before heading back to the normal routine today.
We have a crazy week ahead of us. Sigh. Lots of extra we aren't used to like meetings, appointments, and getting home later than normal, plus soccer and the regular school week routine. I'm a little overwhelmed already but praying we can all handle it well and enjoy our first week back. The holidays are right around the corner and it's a fun time of year! And yay for Fall temps arriving this week!! ☺
Have a great Monday!
